The school has excellent teachers in every classroom. The office is a hub of activity at the popular drop-off and pick-up times, but still are very responsive to the needs of the families, the children and the staff. One of the kindergarten teachers is going on Maternity Leave which has some of the parents worried that she won't come back in the fall. We hope she does, but if she doesn't the school will survive and will make sure that a great teacher takes her place--after all the school has been in business for 37 years and has had many fine teachers enter their doors. Many still communicate with the school and attend school reunions. Submitted by Diana Holz - School Owner

I believe that GRMS is a fabulous school. The Owner and Directors are constantly attending conferences and workshops around the world to make sure they have the best classroom materials and fresh new ideas to share. If I have ever had concerns with my child's learning or teacher, the Directors have gone in and observed the classroom for me. I have learned that things slip through the cracks in any school. The secret is to communicate effectively and speak your mind to those that can do something about it. The parents are very involved, and they have regular parent/teacher meetings so that concerns can be discussed, as well as current and upcoming news. The academic program is top notch and the owner is wonderful. She is always more than willing to listen to suggestions on how to improve the school.

I want to rate this school higher. I wanted to love it. This is our 2nd year in the school. The best teacher they have is leaving this spring and not returning. The school is very clean & very bright. The classroom materials are great. But it is not run well. Very disorganized. Office staff nice but things have a way of slipping through the cracks. The playground is not true Montessori. Some teachers (not all) are very gruff with the kids. Kids get sent to the office for discipline, not a montessori approach. I thought it was more of a school setting and it really is more of a daycare setting for the K & under group.It really depends on which teacher you get.

I love this school. The teachers are loving and committed to quality teaching and every child is looked after. The administration is responsive to parent input and you really get the feeling that everyone cares here. I recommend the school to parents who want a nurturing, controlled atmosphere for their young ones.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
